Our very own Bailey opened up about how the Emerging Professionals program has impacted their career development and trajectory. We ❤️ supporting rising stars 🥹

“Emerging Professionals helps me not only connect with a network of incredible theatre-makers but also connects me to the local people and places that my art directly impacts. This program has helped jump-start my career professionally and personally by giving me an opportunity to get involved in theatre that wholly reflects the world around me—starting in Red Bank.
Being an Emerging Professional means I can always put my best foot forward knowing Two River and its patrons support my artistry." — Bailey Dumlao, Emerging Professional
